Vick was injured in Philadelphia's first matchup with the Giants this season, a 36-21 win Oct. 6. The Eagles have gone 1-1 without him.
"I'm optimistic about it," Vick said after practicing Tuesday. "I've got a good chance."
Nick Foles replaced him just before halftime versus New York, and threw for two touchdowns. He then threw for three more touchdowns and ran for another when the Eagles beat the Buccaneers, 31-20, on Oct. 13. But Foles threw for just 80 yards in three quarters before suffering a concussion in a 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Philadelphia (3-4) would turn to rookie Matt Barkley if neither Vick nor Foles can play Sunday. Barkley who threw three passes that were intercepted in the fourth quarter against Dallas in relief of Foles.
Freeman to play
Josh Freeman's debut with the Minnesota Vikings was a ragged 20-for-53 passing performance that produced no points on offense and raised more questions about how quickly he became the starting quarterback.
Coach Leslie Frazier expressed no day-after regret. Freeman was the right pick to play, Frazier said, and the job is still his this week.
"If I had to do it over again, I don't think I'd do it any differently under the circumstances. I knew exactly why we made the decision. I felt very confident going into the ballgame with the decision," Frazier said Tuesday. "It didn't work out for us this time."
The Vikings (1-5) signed Freeman less than two weeks before his showing Monday against the New York Giants, a 23-7 defeat by a previously winless team in a nationally televised debacle that had analysts, fans and even ex-players mocking and criticizing the quality of play by both teams.
Garcia, who started 10 games for Cleveland in 2004, told 92.3 the Fan (WKRK-FM) on Tuesday that he contacted the Browns and asked for a tryout. The 43-year-old Garcia hasn't started an NFL game in five years, but he informed the Browns he would love a chance to make their team.
"I actually reached out to the Browns and said, 'Hey, if you need a guy to come in, work me out, take a look,"' Garcia told the station. "I don't know if people want me back in Cleveland, but I'm open to the opportunity."
Garcia, who went 3-7 in his stint as a starter in Cleveland, said the Browns declined his offer.
Dumervil agent disciplined
The NFLPA Committee on Agent Regulation and Discipline imposed a six-month suspension of Marty Magid's certification as an NFLPA contract adviser and levied a $25,000 fine.
The committee determined that the "negligence of Magid" contributed to the events that led to Dumervil's release from Denver.
Dumervil became a free agent after Magid was late in delivering the paperwork by fax accepting a reduction in salary. The Broncos had no choice but to release Dumervil, who signed with the Baltimore Ravens. Dumervil fired Magid after the fax issue.
